This lil dollie I made for Mary Toodles' First Birthday, Jan 10th.
I found the pattern (and several of her friends) at
Hillary Lang has the cutest patterns for sale (and a few freebies).
I finished this flowery stitchery last summer, but never did anything with it. I found it again while moving my sewing stuff from one room to another. I put it into an embroidery hoop and hung it in the kitchen to remind me that summer will come again.
You Go Girl. She has the best ideas and she makes the prettiest things. She's got lots of good, creative talent! This last stitchery is my Winter Circle. I know poinsettias don't grow where it's cold, but oh well, it makes for a good theme anyway. I finished this one during the Denver/Pittsburgh game on Sunday. Hey! How about those Broncos??!! Whoo Hoo! We can hardly wait for next Saturday's game! It'll be a tough one, but.... "We Believe!"
Here is what the Farmer's Almanac says about January's Full Moon.....
Full Wolf Moon – January Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.
